It's Complicated ...

How often have I said--or thought--that my life is complicated?

Sometimes it's true ... but other times, not so much.

So here's the update about my college decision: I'm going to Bible college. In January.

I'd thought that making this decision would be complicated, but as I prayed about it, I realized that the facts about my situation are clear-cut. It makes total sense for me to go. So what was really holding me back?

Like I said in my last post, I was afraid.

I don't want to relive what I went through during my last college experience. But when a path seems to be God's will, fear is not a good enough reason to say no.

Today I read through the first chapter of Joshua in my devotions. "Strong and courageous" is how I'll have to be to face my fears. But I don't have to make myself be strong and courageous. I don't have to calm my fear on my own.

My God will help me.

Maybe that's why I think my life is so complicated sometimes. Maybe I think it's complicated because I think I have to solve my problems myself.

I'm glad that's not true.
